A Message from Focus on the Future’s Founder
Dr. Brenda M. Batts
After accumulating more than 20 years of successful training and consulting with thousands of private clients, public school districts, and Education Service Centers, Focus Special Education, LLC opened a new private school in August 2006, Focus on the Future Training Center. We integrate Speech Therapy and other therapeutic approaches in every part of our curriculum to help your child bridge their deficits
Our strategy is to offer specialized training designed to help children with special needs better adapt to our society. Without specialized intervention and training, our society is often times too complex and confusing for your special needs child to function in ways that are considered socially acceptable.
